GA-P35-S3 Rev 1.0 Need advice my first Gigabyte Mainboard

By Kevin Thomas
Oct 13, 2007
  1. Hi I've had this system I built for around 3 months now, everything was running fine untill last week I got a Bsod, and my system would not boot. I started a proccess of elmination removing hardware one by one. Starting with my Ram I've pulled one module out and my system started working fine. Allthough It seems to run fine I'm getting random restarts or game crashes while playing World of warcraft my only game I play, I feel somewhat I have faulty ram not supported by my Motherboard, (reading the stickys) I feel this should be my first thing to do, next payday I'll purchase new ram supported by my board, I've never had a problem with the same brand of ram in other mobos that dont have it in there supported list. This is my first Gigabyte mainboard the BIOS is alot diffrant to that of an Asus in the fact, With everything set at default or auto It Clocks it self depending on how much load my system is taking where ASUS is set by default with what hardware you have installed. I'll repost with how the new ram goes next week, A few other problems I've noted with this system wich could also be the cause of my game crashing Error #134 as noted on Wow's techforums (cannot link) Checking over my IRQ assignments, I've noticed my NIC , Video and USB all share IRQ 16 I've allways thought Video and Network adapters like to have there Own IRQ's. And also, my video card is Showing as 512meg It's only 128meg DDR2 I'm thinking this is something to do with how my bios is configured, Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thankyou!

    You cannot go by that "I've never had a problem with that brand of ram in other motherboards." Each mobo is unique. RTFM to determine what brands and types yours will accept.

    Second, read the mobo manual carefully to determine BIOS settings. Do you need a BIOS update for your new video card? 99% of the time your questions are answered in the manual. RTFM!

    Were you running this RAM on anything other than default voltage settings?
